Hawkins Dental & Implant Clinic

1335 Bristol Rd S, Birmingham B31 2SS, UK – 0121 475 6569

Having not visited a dental practice for some years due a previous experience I had no choice but to visit one ASAP . I highly recommend this practice ( I checked it out first ) from the moment you walk through the door you are made welcome , and it’s genuine too ! I seen Dr Stewart Hawkins and after the initial check up a treatment plan was put in place , I wasn’t berated for not visiting a dentist , I wasn’t and haven’t been judged or made to feel guilty or bad for the condition my teeth are in , the whole team got on with it and seriously put me at ease ! I have had three sessions with the outstanding hygienist Jenna Hewitt , after the first session there was a very noticeable difference in my teeth and that’s no mean feat because my teeth to be blunt were not good ! All the staff from reception to the dentist have been great and very amiable and it’s ok to chat and have a laugh with them too ! About costs : The prices are on display and clear on the website too , and from experience I can say they are very reasonable, I was expecting to pay £2000+ for an implant alone , from start to finish the cost of my complete treatment is below that !!! And that includes an extraction , filling , a dental bridge and three sessions with an hygienist....... One final comment ! I actually went to the surgery wanting an implant , having taken the advice off the dentist I opted for the bridge , the dentist could have given me an implant and thus charged me more , lots more ! So for anyone in fear of visiting a dentist ... give this practice a look see , you won’t be disappointed and virtually pain free !!! Regards Paul Flood

Firstly I love that I can park easily and for free here. The staff are always happy to help and take their time to really explain and advise. I have had both check-ups and teeth whitening here and I highly recommend! Plus the practice is always super clean.

Greenwood Dental Clinic

17 Edgewood Rd, Rednal, Birmingham B45 8SB, UK – 0121 453 7949

Over the psst few years I have regularly had both Botox and filler injections in various areas of my face. This has helped to maintain a fresh look that doesn't look 'done. Andrew, being a dentist has a wealth of knowledge on the anatomy of the face and the changes that occur with age. There is no hard sell, if something is not right for you he will explain why. I couldn't recommend highly enough.

Great value service in professional surroundings, thanks - i highly recommend!!

St Laurence Church Northfield

Church Road, Birmingham B31 2LX, UK – 0121 475 1518

Beautiful church and grounds.

As a visitor to Northfield, I attended the Christmas Eve Eucharist - my second visit to the Church - and what a spiritual occasion it was. A Church that felt of prayer over centuries, a joyful congregation, which I had also experienced previously, and a sermon that moved me so much I had to repeat the theme to those at home.It is a church family that made me, a visitor, feel welcome. Sadly I have been unable to trace details of the Church leadership as I would like to correspond; how about an inclusion on the Web Page?

Events at Lickey Hills Country Park

Warren Ln, Rednal, Birmingham B45 8ER, UK

Such an amazingly beautiful place, i would advise all to visit it. Once you arrive at the Visitors Center & have parked for free, you have the choice to just go off on a myriad of works covering almost all capabilities. From the short uphill stroll to the wonderful vistas @ the top of the nearest hill, to the monster walks that take you over tough ground & steep slopes that are truly rewarding in there own right. Or you can just enjoy the reasonably priced cafe & children's play area at the back of the center. Quite often in the summer months there's lots going on for the younger ones too, from archery to treasure hunting.

The park is lovely itself and the facilities are great. The Lickey Hills are marvellous. A very large, well-kept park full of natural beauty, perfect for getting lost in nature.  Also has a great view of the city, and many interesting trails to follow, like the bluebell trail and the bunny trail. Beautiful scenery with plenty to see, a must for families to enjoy and maybe take a picnic. place well worth visiting at any time of the year.

Green House Erection & Conservatory Repairs

1132 Bristol Rd S, Birmingham B31 2RH, UK – 0121 628 5674

Excellent service from Nigel. Repaired my greenhouse windows and door frame. Would highly recommend and use again if needed!

Really pleased with my experience with Nigel Hanbury, Nigel sorted every thing out for me when I needed a new greenhouse as mine had been damaged beyond repair by storm Doris. He was so helpful and knew exactly what I needed, I ended up with a lovely new greenhouse which Nigel and his helper Andy put up for me. They remove my old damaged greenhouse and put up a new one all in one day. I was really impressed nothing was too much trouble, they just got on with the job, I would not hesitate to recommend Nigel Hanbury to anyone requiring his help. He is a lovely man and a pleasure to have around.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Lickey

Himalaya Restaurant (Licensed)

1716 Bristol Rd S, Rednal, Birmingham B45 9QD, UK – 0121 453 4336

My party of 8 thoroughly enjoyed the food and service here. Considering it was busy all our starters and main dishes arrived very quickly. Ambience and furniture etc were very tasteful. Only downside was a naam had been forgotten but this was quickly rectified. Also, maybe tap water should be provided without having to ask for it.

Enjoyed our visit here. Staff were lovely, attentive without being overbearing. We ordered poppadoms and the dips which were great then came the starters which were a little disappointing we ordered three starters between the two of us and two of them were a let down. The vegetable samosa were clearly bought in frozen and unfortunately they were still cold in the middle and the chicken chat was on the bland side lacking seasoning and it looked like something the cat threw up. The kebabs that were ordered were scrummy though full of flavour and juicy. The main courses we ordered were fantastic though, my wife had a lamb dish that was delicious I had a tandoori mixed grill and this was well cooked and a very generous portion. The naan breads were lovely and fluffy and hot. I was going to award three stars but the attitude of the staff and the very good main courses raised it to 4. I would love them to make their own samosa.

Amazing school they care about students and don't put children under pressure so I rate it 5 stars AMAZING!!!

This school is amazing. They keep you safe but the only thing that prevents me from rating it 5 stars is the fact that they don't deal with bullying and bad behaviour very well.
